would not pledge allegiance to the republican nominee. for now, the billionaire businessman is on board. the pledge is not legal but it gives the republican establishment assurance he won't launch a third party run if he loses the nomination. >> i have signed the pledge. >> reporter: trump, promising not to run and gaining a political benefit for himself. >> i will be totally pledging my allegiance to the republican party. >> reporter: the move means trump would have the backing of all gop candidates if he wins the nomination. it could combat an angle by jeb bush like in this ad depicting trump and hillary clinton on two sides of the same coin. >> under democratic presidents,
3:01 am
the economy does better. >> jeb coming out swinging in new hampshire thursday. >> when he attacks me personally, damn right i'm going to fight back. >> reporter: he's voted republican since 1972. but, a potential achilles heel could be exposed during the next gop debate as it was during this radio interview thursday. >> i'm looking for the next commander in chief to know who hassan nasrallah is. >> do you know the players? >> no, but by the time we get there, they will all be gone. >> asking gotcha questions. >> the difference between hezbollah and hamas doesn't matter to you now but it will? >> i will know more about it
3:02 am
than you know. >> trump continues to dominate the gop pack, but he's not the only one with rising support n. a head-to-head with the other gop candidates, second place retired neurosurgeon, ben carson is the only one to best the donald. >> reporter: the spectacle involving the pledge is a win for trump. one of the things that made him attractive with voters is he was seen as running against establishment partiers. he's given up important political leverage. john? >> interesting to see how that plays out. >> for democrats, two story lines unfolding. joe biden making his most comments to date saying he would not hesitate, if his family can handle it. this as hillary clinton is facing new questions about her use of a private e-mail server. jeff is traveling with the
3:03 am
former secretary. he is live in san juan, puerto rico. good morning, jeff. >> reporter: good morning, john. hillary clinton is coming to pr. she's nod dogging her responsibility. her former chief of staff at the secretary of state at the state department spent more than nine hours on capitol hill testifying saying none of the private e-mails were marked classified. none of them have been with held from the committee. this is just the beginning of this. so many more aides are set to testify and the secretary will in october. this has raised questions of whether joe biden will jump in. let's take a listen to what he
3:04 am
said last night in atlanta. >> the factor is, can i do it? can my family under take what is a commitment that would be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances. the honest to god answer is, i just don't know. >> he's still set to decide by october whether he will jump into this campaign. he is weighing all this carefully over the next few weeks. this is one of the reasons hillary clinton has a head start on him. it's why she is in puerto rico today, part of her pledge to fight for every vote. voters can participate in the primary elections, but not the general in november. >> thanks so much. joining us to discuss all the political do i thinks is editor-in-chief, john and cnn political xhem thai tor and
3:05 am
jeffrey. great to have you here on this friday. we have a lot to talk about. let's play a clip from the hugh hewitt show. he was trying to ask donald trump about his knowledge of different political leaders or international relations questions. listen to this. >> are you familiar with general soleimani. >> yes. go ahead, tell me. >> he runs the goods forces. >> right. >> by the way, they have been mistreated by us. >> no, not the kurds forces. >> i thought you said kurds. >> no. >> okay. is that a gotcha question? >> it's not a gotcha question but i don't think it's a gaffe
3:06 am
on the trump scale. it's a radio interview. fairly obscure point, it's not like he doesn't know who the prime minister of britain is. trump seems teflon. >> it wasn't just that, maybe he misheard kurds. >> he wasn't in person with him. >> he went on. it wasn't clear whether he knew the leaders of the terrorist organizations around the world. not just that, you know what, i don't need to know because they are all going to be dead or gone within a few years is probably not true. >> do we live in a world where this may not hurt donald trump or the world where things should be, maybe you want your people running for president to know about this kind of stuff. >> i would remind everyone of the occasion in 1999 when a
3:07 am
reporter for a boston television station, i think his name was andy hillard asked this question of george w. bush and bush could not name three of the four people he was being asked about in terms of foreign leaders. he still got elected president, twice. whatever people think of george w. bush. this is -- i like you, hewitt, but i think this is gotcha stuff. at the end of the day, if you are president of the united states, you'll get up to speed quick. trump is a smart guy. he's a good, quick study. i don't think it's going to hurt him. >> jeff, just to be true, 1999, he was not a foreign policy moment. a lot of terrorist activity, the general very much in the news right now. >> to that point, we are more than a decade after 9/11, the
3:08 am
conservative movement rallied around the moment. when you have a problem with hamas and hezbollah, you haven't been paying that close attention, which is the primary job of a president. like a source like hugh hewitt whether it's a negative tor brash ignorance i'm looking for. >> there's a moment where he sounded like an overzealous t.a. in a place where john berman went to school, known as harvard. >> trump's poll numbers just went up ten points because you said harvard. >> this is my point. for his supporters, does this stuff matter? >> you know, for supporters, they will look at this and say, well, in essence, to borrow a reagan phrase, there they go a ga gain, trying to do him in.
3:09 am
>> why are you scoffing at this, john? >> i'm saying trump is teflon on this point. hugh hewitt is a card carrying conservative commentator. at some point, if anyone asking him a question becomes part of the mainstream media, the people you can trust fit in a phone booth. >> that's an interesting point. what was he doing? >> asking a legitimate question? >> or trying to expose him? >> it's the job of a journalist to ask a tough question. it was a tough question. it fits a format of a gotcha question. >> she's going to be a moderator on the cnn debate. he's lucky it was a radio interview. >> it may come up. expect it because he is a moderator. >> i think donald trump
3:10 am
supporters are, you know, they eye roll at this kind of thing. you know, when you are president of the united states, you get up to speed quickly, pick the right people and you'll go from there. >> that was john's point. >> before we move on, i want to take a walk down memory lane and remember back four years ago, herman cain. he was asked a policy question. listen to what he said. >> i'm ready for the gotcha questions. they already started to come. when they ask me who is the president of -- i'm going to say, i don't know, do you know? >> that's how herman cain was going to handle it. >> her man cane is one of my favorite things right now. >> let's go on to joy biden right now. it's very interesting to see him talking out loud on camera.
3:11 am
can we play it one more time, what he said? let's play it one more time. >> the factor is, can i do it? can my family undertake what is a commitment that would be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances. the honest to god answer is, i just don't know. >> john, he just doesn't know. >> that is such an emotionally raw moment. both underscores why people like biden as we working through grief and because he's honest, he's open. the death of his son is still weighing heavily, as it would, on him and his family. it can only influence decision making if you are being honest of where you are in the cycle of grief. >> that was a real window into his decision making. he let us all in. jeffrey, what did you think? >> absolutely.
3:12 am
i feel for him. you know, running for president is a, needless to say, major undertaking. he's done it twice. he knows what is involved. he is the sitting vice president. this was a blow here. he is an honest guy. you may not agree with him, but he's an honest guy. you can tell he is struggling with this. >> john, jeffrey, thank you so much. have a great weekend. great to see you guys. we will talk about all this with the republican presidential candidate rick santorum. stick around for that and watch the cnn presidential debate wednesday, september 16, 6:00 p.m. all issues on full display. the kentucky clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses waking up in a jail cell this morning. she was ordered to jail for defieing a court order. she says it violates her
3:13 am
religious convictions. unclear how long she will stay behind bars. her deputy clerks agreed to issue them. a breakthrough in the hunt for the three suspected cop killers in illinois. home surveillance video may show the suspects. rosa is with us. what's on the video. >> reporter: let me tell you why this is so significant. right now, the only description they have of the suspects is they are two white males and a black male. imagine what crisp, home video obtained by investigators could do. it could give the cop killers faces. >> we don't believe in coincidences, however, we still don't know and can't verify exactly whether this video is relevant to the case. at this point, it's one of the most significant ones we have
3:14 am
recovered. >> reporter: here is the other thing they have recovered, that is the officer's weapon. this is significant because investigators have been tight lipped about that gun. cnn sources tell us that gun was actually fired. as for the lieutenant's funeral, that's set for monday. john? >> thanks so much. we are following more breaking news. britain's prime minister, david cameron vowing to accept thousands more refugees. cnns international correspondent nic robertson following this for us. good morning, nic? >> reporter: good morning, john. he's been under pressure to step up and do more. he's been under pressure at home not to take in more migrants. the recent pictures of the dead
3:15 am
boy on the beach has given sympathy. david cameron not immune to that saying, as a father, how he felt seeing the child washed up on the beach. what we have heard from him in the last hour is britain will accept thousands more refugees. already britain accepted some 5,000 refugees into britain for asylum. he said this will be done working to take those people who will come to britain to take them from camps bordering syria to make sure they are transit and passage to the uk is safe. what britain is doing is to work with its head and its heart to give refuge to people in need. alisyn. >> so happy to see some progress is being made. thank you. this morning, four u.s. troops injured in the sinai

3:18 am
we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto®. i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve
3:19 am
or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn. because it gives me...

3:21 am
welcome back. a little 2-year-old syrian boy has become a symbol of the migrant crisis facing europe. not just europe, the entire world. the boy was found dead on a turkish beach after their boat sank. his mother and brother were also killed. asking europe's world leaders to let in more migrants. peter joins us now, a cnn political commentator and associate professor in new york. britain just announced they are going to let in more syrian refugees. this is the picture that the world saw. do you think david cameron, in great britain would have made this decision if not confronted by this picture? >> i don't think so. this migrant crisis has been going on and getting bigger and bigger for months now.
3:22 am
there's a lot of fear by cameron and other politicians there will be a backlash against them. i think, with this picture is a feeling there will be more support. >> we all look at a 2-year-old kid. we look at a family and think it could be ours. now, we hear the anguish pain from a father. listen to that. >> translator: is there someone's children who is not valuable to them? everything is gone. i plan to sit by the grave of my wife and children. that is it. >> he plans to sit fwi grave of his wife and children. in syria, he doesn't want anyone's help. he doesn't feel like any nation helped him when he needed it. >> he had a legal claim to go to canada. he had relatives who were going to take care of him. he couldn't get the right document in turkey because it's so chaotic there.
3:23 am
he's so desperate, he tried to get on this boat that capsized. it's a big controversy in canada now and will lead canada to do the right thing and do more. the united states should be next. >> a stark picture of an island on a beach. there's another picture that puts it island in. hungary is putting up a barbed wire fence. is a fence going to solve this problem? >> no, no, not at all. what's happening is people are coming through hungary. they want to get to germany or austria. germany is allowing 800,000. what happened is the hungarians are required by the european unions to keep people in hungary and process them there. you are seeing a strong backlash against the presence of refug s
3:24 am
refugees, especially muslim refugees. this is potent. >> poland has said, we'll take christians. we'll help out. we'll take christians, but only christians. >> right. it's shocking. you are seeing a division between germany and sweden saying our history, even our christianity requires us to reach out to people in need and especially leaders in eastern europe saying no, europe is a christian place, we don't want more muslims. we should not be self-righteous. we do not have a great record of letting in syrian refugees. people want to do something on humane grounds. >> again, humane grounds. a picture of what it's like for people trying to flee. it's not just syria, libya, afghanistan, there is a crisis right now. there are so many war torn regions in the world, hopeless
3:25 am
places where people are willing to leave and risk it all for the chance, the chance, not necessarily a 50% chance they can get a better life. >> the answer has to be a more generous policy but also a renewed effort to end the civil war in syria. the civil war has been such a disaster in producing migration throughout the world. i think there's at least a glimmer of hope. because of the iran nuclear deal and the relationship between the united states and iran, we can have a new process to end that ghastly war. >> i don't want to make it seem like it is simple, it requires a heart, a heart to deal with problems like these young kids. european leaders are meeting. this is the train station in budapest, in hungary. hungary is not doing economically brilliant right now. they have their own domestic problems. all of europe needs to ban tagt and find out a way to handle
3:26 am
this. >> one of the remarkable stories is the grass roots of ordinary people saying we will open our home in iceland. they have had 10,000 people who will open their homes to refugees. partly the ability of governments to coordinate a response, which is difficult. we are seeing remarkable movement of ordinary people saying, as human beings we have a moral responsibility. >> great to have you with us. really appreciate it. alisyn. that kentucky county clerk is waking up behind bars this morning choosing that fate over issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. what is next for her? that story, coming up. if your purse is starting to look more like a tissue box... you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec® for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec® is different than claritin®. because it starts working faster

3:33 am
passions from those who back the clerk. >> i support kim davis. you are going to see god's people rise up like never before. i think her going to jail, i think they just woke up a great sleeping giant. >> reporter: kim davis was tearful on the stand, testifying her religious beliefs and conscious make her up able to issue the licenses in accordance with the supreme court's marriage equality ruling this summer. davis is currently up healing the order to issue the licenses in a higher court. in an earlier statement davis saids it's about marriage and god's word. it's a matter of religious liberty protected under the first amendment. the court rejected the organizement that she was factually unable tor physically unable to comply with the court's order to issue the licenses. judge david bunning saying our
3:34 am
system of justice requires citizens and elected officials to follow the orders of the court. earlier this week, the supreme court denied a decision to enable her to refuse licenses while the appeal pros sesz continues. doe spite that, they continued to refuse to license couples. april miller testified she's been barred three times for getting a license to marry her partner. >> we did not ask the court to imprison miss davis. that was not the sanlgs we sought. it is unfortunate that she is there. but the judge did what he felt was necessary in order to gain compliance. >> reporter: alexander field, cnn, kentucky. >> we'll ask rick santorum about that coming up. a lot of politicians are weighing in on the case. one of hillary clinton's advisers grilled for nine hours

3:40 am
figure out whether any e-mails were with held or destroyed. let's bring in errol lewis. i thought i was going to bring in another guest, but i don't need another one. i just need you. what was unearthed in this testimony? >> nothing. cheryl mills was asked about releasing a full transcript of everything that was said. this has been going on for a year and a half now about event that is happened three years ago. they have gone through this in great, great detail. this was a consolidation of three investigations put together in this one committee, what happened during a 48-hour period. cheryl mills says she has nothing to hide. she told them everything she could possibly tell them. i don't think there's a reason
3:41 am
not to believe her. >> i want to bring in maria, a strategist and political commentator. great to have you with us. >> thank you. >> what did you think of his demeanor there? he seemed almost satisfied with this. maybe she did say something. >> i know, right? i was equally surprised. it didn't surprise me she would have made that kind of prez z enation. she is incredibly smart and professional and i was pleased to see the reaction. he got everything he needed from her. in fact, she answered every single question that the committee put to her. maybe she convinced him that secretary clinton wasn't the one running across the grassy knoll. i think this will -- obviously, the questions will continue. i think, from what we have seen and heard, she did a terrific job in putting to rest the concerns from the committee. we will see.
3:42 am
>> let's talk about this other person they want to interview. the state department i.t. guy. his lawyers made it clear he's going to plead the fifth. what is that about? >> look, it's difficult for outsiders to see. we want the truth. this person is a noncombatant. he is not a politician, doesn't want to be a politician. he is the i.t. guy. there are a lot of things you can say that get you in trouble, confidentiality agreements you signed. i think his attorney is doing what a good attorney should do. do not expose yourself. rest on your constitutional rights. you do not have to give all kind of information and get into trouble. >> you are looking forward to october when hillary clinton will be testifying. what is she going to say that is new? what are we going to hear? >> we'll see. i think, sort of to your point that maybe we won't hear anything new. guess what?
3:43 am
this will have been the third time she testifies for many, many hours in front of these committees. it will have been in total more than ten investigations that these committees have done over the issue of benghazi. many reports saying there was no wrong doing and no political cover up, which is what republicans have been alleging from the beginning. tens of thousands of documents have been turned over to these committees. hundreds and thousands of taxpayer money has been spent on trying to figure out what happened in benghazi. you know, secretary clinton took responsibility for what happened. there was a report that came out that was essentially put forward. 29 recommendations she embraced and put in place. her point is, look, we need to get to the bottom of this. many people, the state department thought they had gone to the bottom of this and putting the recommendations in
3:44 am
place. that has been the point, alisyn, so none of this happens again. republicans, i think, are in a position of being, you know, accused of political overreach, which is not the first time. >> let's talk about what hillary clinton is going to do over the weekend. she is going to start a women's initiative where by she weaves women's issues into every facet of her campaign. everything that she talks about will now also incorporation women to it. let me, while we are at it, show you the latest polling from an abc news/washington post poll that shows where she stands among women. she is 48% favorable. 51% unfavorable. that compares to july where her numbers were better. what's gone wrong with hillary clinton and women? >> the strategy tells you they understand they are going to have to do something they did not do in 2008, which is to put the fact she is a woman, she is a champion of women's issues and has been. it is a threat that runs through
3:45 am
her entire career and put that front and center. if all you see her talking about is the usual talking points, women voters don't like it. most voters don't like it. independents don't like it. it's a smart kind of thing. she should have done it in 2008. it will sell better now. i have seen her in some settings talking about the work she's done with women overseas with the state department, the clinton foundation. it is compelling. a different hillary clinton that we would do well to see more of. that's really who she is, politically. >> i want to talk about the window joe biden gave us into his decision making whether or not he will run. let me play for you what he said, this heart felt moment where he explained it. >> the factor is, can i do it? can my family undertake what is a commitment that will be proud
3:46 am
to undertake under ordinary circumstances. the honest to god answer is, i just don't know. >> that was last night. that was a somber moment for joe biden. which way do you think he's leaning? >> that's the big question. i don't think anybody knows. what we saw last night was a glimpse into what he is going through, the heart wretching moment he is going through with his family. what was so compelling to me is it felt like you were in his living room and you were the only one he was talking to about this. i think that is part of joe biden's appeal in terms of his authenticity, in terms of letting people in and really speaking his mind. i think he deserves this moment. i think he needs to continue to make all of the actions that he's doing in terms of talking to the right people, making sure that his team is looking at all the polling information. he deserves that. that doesn't mean he's leaning toward running.
3:47 am
it doesn't mean he's leaning toward not. i think, at the end of the day, my gut tells me he won't do it. who knows. we have seen this political season is topsy turvy. i think this is one more question injected into the political debate. >> nothing is predictable this season. thanks so much. what is your take on all the stories? tweet us #newdaycnn or facebook.com/newday and we will read them later. the nfl commissioner may be feel i feeling deflated. what is the next surprise, the next scandal to trip up the national football league? it takes a lot of work... to run this business. but i really love it. i'm on the move all day long... and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should. so i drink boost® to get the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals,
3:48 am

mother in boston. brady is free! quarterback tom brady will suit up for the opener next week after a judge overruled his four-game deflategate suspension. a stark repudiation for the commissioner. his authority and a new complicated mess for a league trying to figure out how to discipline players. joining us now, sports columnist, christine brennan. christine, the judge says it was junk. inadequate notice of brady to potential discipline and misconduct. opportunity for investigators. including witness interview notes. what the league did and the way they did it unacceptable. >> that's correct, john.
3:53 am
it's a surprise for legal experts i spoke with who said hey, this is a collective bargaining agreement, roger goodell was given these powers. these are new issues. the domestic violence issue was a year ago. that was rearing its head. at this point, they wanted him to do more, overreach. of course, he eventually did give ray rice more than a two day game suspension. we wanted him to do more on a different issue and being reprimanded for doing too much. it's a fascinating time in sports. >> it seems goodell can't do enough. he didn't do enough in one case and now too much. is there a rule book? is he making it up as he goes along? >> i think there's an element.
3:54 am
it's our times. these are issues others have not dealt with. it's not saying that today's leaders shouldn't be dealing with it, of course they should. these are different times, dimpt scrutiny. i think there are great questions coming out of this. it is a fascinating discussion we should be having as a sports nation. what do we want them to do? should they be the judge, jury? it's what the union gave. or do we want every player running for the courts? i'm guessing we don't want them clogged with players. this is an issue, because of this decision, we are now looking at it. >> whatever glee i might have in the fact brady plays you made excellent questions. why be tied up with deflated footballs. the domestic abuse and deflated
3:55 am
football are two things. the fact they are in the same conversation gets to the nfl right now. maybe it shouldn't be the commissioner at all. maybe it should be and they will do it in the next collective bargaining, independent arbitrator connected to the league. >> great point. keep in mind, the players have not wanted the ability to discipline themselves. you know, they wanted to give that power to the commissioner. so, do they want to take that on? do they want to be part of this notion or be able to blame roger goodell? of course, a big issue we are seeing as a terrible domestic abuser, just a monster, what he did, far worse than the ray rice punch, which was terrible in and of itself. greg hardy may be looking at the brady decision trying to reduce the ten-game suspension. could greg hardy, the abuser,
3:56 am
use the brady decision to go down to two games or none and play next week for the dallas cowboys. this is the issue that has been opened up by berman's decision yesterday. >> what happens to tom brady now? >> he wins. he wins. that what he does, he wins. >> i was posing it to christine. >> sorry. >> no problem, john. the second circuit will now look at this. the nfl is going to go there. they have a better chance of winning at that level than the level it's been at. on the other hand, it goes to that court as a loser. but, the nfl wants to keep it going to the integrity of the game. a lot of people agree, you want to see if a man was cheating and do you want to punish that? obviously something happened with the footballs. we know that for a fact. brady will be cheered in new england and booed in every other stadium. this story, while it ended at
3:57 am
this juncture, it moved on. >> he was already going to be cheered and booed everywhere else. it is actually part of the issue here. christine, i think you are right just about everything. >> thanks christine. >> thank you very much. we are following a lot of new this is morning, let's get to it. >> i have signed the pledge. >> trump, officially promises not to run as a third party candidate. >> trump slamming debate moderator for asking gotcha questions. >> do you know the players? >> nope. i knew you were going to ask me things like this. >> you have to know who the players are. >> trump loses to carson in a head-to-head. >> sanders drawing big crowds. >> i am leader of the opposition. florida officials warning to be on the lookout for a king cobra. >> 18 feet long. >> they are poison. they will attack. >> the controversial kentucky clerk is taken to jail.
3:58 am
>> she may be jailed behind bars, but he conscience remains free. announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> welcome back to your "new day." we begin with donald trump. a lot of people saying trump seemed confused when a radio host asked him questions about terror groups. he didn't offer any apologies. in fact, the latest national poll shows trump hitting new highs as he promises not to run as a third party candidate. >> meanwhile, on the democratic side, vice president biden giving a candid and remotional answer when asked if he will run for office as sanders tries to close the gap with hillary clinton. we are following it all with joe johns. good morning, joe. >> good morning, alisyn. another trump/public relations

going to trump's office in new york to get him on the team. it was last month trump said he would not pledge allegiance to the republican nominee. for now, he says he's on board. the pledge is not legally enforceable, but gives the republican establishment emotional assurance he won't launch a third party run if he loses the nomination. >> i have signed the pledge. >> reporter: trump promising not to run as a third party candidate and in the process gaining a political benefit for himself. >> i will be totally pledging my allegiance to the republican party. >> it would have the backing of all the gop candidates if he wins the nomination in 2016. >> this is not a guy who is a conservative. >> reporter: it could combat bush saying trump is phony like in this ad showing trump and

hillary clinton two sides of the same coin. >> under democratic presidents, people do better. >> the economy does better under the democrats than the republicans. >> jeb coming out swinging in new hampshire thursday. >> when he attacks me personally i'm going to fight back. >> reporter: on twitter, he's voted republican since 1972. a potential achilles heel for trump could be exposed if asked about foreign policy as it was during this radio interview thursday. >> i'm looking for the next commander in chief to know who hassan nasrallah is. do you know the players without a score card? >> no. by the time i get to office, they will all be changed and gone. >> reporter: he said he asked gotcha questions? >> the difference between hezbollah and hamas does not
4:01 am
matter to you yet, but it will? >> i will know more about it than you know and believe me, it won't take long. >> did you vote for trump? rump trump continues to dominate the gop pack. he's not the only one with rising support n. a head-to-head with the other gop candidates, second place retired yur carson one to best the donald. the spectacle is an issue for trump. he was seen as running against establishment politics. tea partiers who support him were already expressing concern he's given up important political leverage. alisyn? >> thanks so much for that. democratic hopeful, bernie sanders trying to close the gap with hillary clinton stomping in iowa. we are following his campaign. what is the latest? >> reporter: hey, good morning,
4:02 am
alisyn. people are feeling the burn as they say in iowa. take a look at the crowds, it is simply a race against time. sanders doesn't like to talk about the horse race. he hates to talk about it. we got one-on-one time with him yesterday and he did talk about that. he talked about the fact he knows he has to change these big, big crowds, the numbers at three stops yesterday. one of a town. a lot of people and a lot of support. he's got to translate that into voters. that is something he emphasized. he wants to talk about the issues. he is talking about raising the minimum wage and expanding social security. he also wants to make sure that the people that are around him are going to come out in caucus. that is the big challenge. alisyn, one of the thing that is is obvious is it is very obamaesque. he talks about a revolution and politics not as usual. take a listen.
4:03 am
>> we will be outspent. let me say this, i know we will be outspent by opponents. we don't have a superpac. i think the grass roots movement, that's what's going to win it for us. >> reporter: alisyn, we heard a couple yes we cans. he knows he is getting these crowds and numbers. he's got to get the infrastructure together to do what he is saying he wants to do, which is a political revolution. >> that will be the challenge. thank you for that background. >> he's doing okay out there. >> yeah. here this morning to talk about this essie and amanda. amanda works for senator ted cruz and today is her first day appearing on "new day." >> thank you so much. thanks, guys. >> you will get the first question. it thooz do with donald trump,
4:04 am
the radio interview with hugh hewitt asking about terror groups around the world. foreign policy, a key campaign issue. listen to a little bit of the radio interview. >> when you start throwing around names of people and where they live and give me their address. i think it's ridiculous. >> i wouldn't do that, that's crazy. >> the names you mentioned, they probably won't be there in six months or a year. >> i don't know, he's got staying power. >> see what happens. you know what? in that case, first day in office or the day after the election, i will know more about it than you will ever know. >> more than you will ever know. amanda, not so much that he didn't know who the head of hezbollah or hamas or al qaeda, but the way he answered. i don't know and i don't care about knowing right now. i will know when i need to know. is that an acceptable answer?
4:05 am
>> no. not for someone running to be commander and chief and our strategy for protecting america. we have seen this pattern so many times with donald trump. when he doesn't know the answer to a question, he goes after the person who asks it, even if it's a terribly fair question. it appears trump is trying to bluff his way into the white house. i this i this cha raid has run its course. >> at this point, does he need to know all these distinctions? >> you know, i don't know that you could find a president or a would be president who knew who they were before taking office but i don't think it's too much to hope that someone running for president would at least express some curiosity about world affairs and not suggest don't worry, on the day i take office, i will know who the major players and the war on terror
4:06 am
is. that's alarming. that said, his supporters will say he's antiestablishment. he's an outsider. this is exactly what we want. i just like to remind them, the establishment does not have a hole, does not corner the market on knowledge. you can be antiestablishment and actually know stuff, too. >> interesting point. let's look at where he is in the polls right now. it is, you know, the numbers keep rising. this is the new university poll, republican voters nationwide. donald trump is at 30%. he is that much higher than the next, ben carson at 18%, then cruz 8%, bush 8%. look what's happened since july. trump doubled numbers since july as has, more so, ben carson. it's interesting. the next poll, in a trump versus carson match up, however, carson comes out on top with 55%. wait a second? >> we have that clip. it's actually carson beating
4:07 am
trump, which is frankly remarkable. >> explain that, amanda. >> right now, the polls just show what -- who americans want to hear more from. ben carson hasn't had a huge presence. the first republican debate was his introduction to voters. people are intrigued. he has a brilliant life story to tell. that said, looking at the head-to-head match up with carson and trump, they are wildly different candidates. i think it's very hard to evaluate them one against the other. when i look at that poll, i see indictment with the field and people not rising to the occasion, fighting for a cause, proving they have what it takes. >> there's two remarkable things here. carson is the only republican candidate defeating or leading trump in a head-to-head match up. the only one trails by a lot. the other interesting thing, this is carson's best week.
4:08 am
he's off the trail. he's on vacation right now. it seems he is doing his best by not being around. sthak is right. i talked to a lot of conservatives around the country who are intrigued by ben carson and haven't seen a lot of ben carson. when i point out the things he's said and the positions he's held on the second amendment, just being one, they are actually very surprised by some of his very bizarre past statements. i think once ben carson starts talking more and the level of scrutiny that is applied to other candidates starts being applied to ben carson, i think people will admire his life story and consider someone else to be president. >> let's talk about jeb bush. as we saw in that poll, his numbers have gone down since july. he is in a war of words with donald trump. jeb bush appears to be getting
4:09 am
feistier and feistier. >> i'm going to push back when he says things that are ugly and will damage our brand. i'm sure he attacks me, i'm going the fight back. >> he could ignore trump or engage. >> look how uncomfortable he looks. body posture is hunched up. i think he's making the classic establishment type of mistake. when you see a grass roots kind of movement that isn't supportive of you. instead of drawing the lessons saying they are upset about illegal immigration, they want to kill that movement. he's going after trump to kill him. he thinks it's his job to take him out of the race. it's backfiring. people want an optimistic
4:10 am
message. >> you are right he will. do you believe he will order the code red? >> you know, jeb bush, it sounds like he's saying, i'm angry, i'm high energy. you can't say it, you have to be it. amanda is right, it doesn't come off as authentic. jeb's selling point is he was a happy warrior. it doesn't work well. frankly, it's benefiting other candidates, i think. marco rubio, i think, looks more sober when it comes to trump. jeb, honestly looks like he's setting his hair on fire. walker looks more sober when it comes to trump. i think jeb, you know, jeb is the front-runner for the sort of establishment wing so he's doing what he thinks he has to do. but, i think we should take a breath. it's august. or september. >> it's september! >> 2015. we have 14 months.
4:11 am
ift's a long hau. >> thank you for that sober assessment. great to see you guys. >> thanks. >> we are going to talk about all this with presidential candidate rick santorum later this morning. of course, you must watch the republican presidential debate. the cnn debate, wednesday, september 16th at 6:00 p.m. >> or john berman will come get you. >> yes. >> this important story you have been following. rowan county kentucky is waking up in jail after failing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. she defied a court order. alexander field joins us live with more details. what is the latest, alexandra? >> kim davis, the county clerk is waking up in a county jail. we spoke to her husband. he says kim davis is prepared to stay in jail until as long as this takes.
4:12 am
this is the clerk that denies couples of marriage licenses since the supreme court ruled same-sex marriages were legal throughout the nation. a judge rule that is kim davis had to issue marriage licenses to any couple that is met the legal requirements to marriage. she's been a hold out, refusing to do that. she is in contempt of court. attorneys say she is asking the state for a simple fix. >> she's asked for one simple accommodation for her faith. not just for her, but clerks in kentucky that are situated. remove her name. she'll issue the certificates. she doesn't want her name and title on it. that, in her understanding and mind is authorizing something that is contrary to her christian values and convictions. >> reporter: the governor says here in kentucky, it is the responsibility of the county clerk to issue marriage
4:13 am
licenses. there are no plans, according to the governor to convene a special session to discuss whether or not there should be changes to the marriage license form as kim davis' attorney is requesting. here is the news this morning. the couples who have been denied marriage licenses have that chance to come today and get the licenses. with davis in court, a judge authorized five of her six deputy clerks to give out licenses to couples that apply. the sixth that will not be giving out the licenses was her son. davis was given the chance if she agreed not to interfere with the process but he couldn't guarantee that. >> it will be interesting to see if they walk away with licenses today. breaking a few minutes ago, britain announcing it will get thousands more refugees.

this is a stand off in hungary with police. fred is live in budapest this morning. good morning, fred. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, john. the scene here continues to be tragic. i'm here at the train station where a train is stranded with hundreds of mostly syrian migrants on it who want to go on to germany. i want to show you the scene. many of them camping out in the camp, in front of the train. they had a makeshift demonstration where people were just starting to cry, starting to scream, saying all they want is they want to be able to move forward. they say the situation on the train is bad. they have been holed up more than 24 hours with little food and water. a lot of pregnant women and children. i managed to speak to one of those on board. here is what he had to say. [ inaudible ]
4:15 am
>> we buy the ticket with our money. they don't take us from the station. >> you can just see the frustration there amongst those people with many of them that came to us and told us almost the identical thing. the tragic thing, there's no solution to the problem. the hungarian government insists they get off the train, get registered here and go to a camp here. they say they want to go to germany and the germans are willing to take them in. a tragic story as this unfolds and continues to grow here in europe. alisyn? >> it seems like such a problem there. thank you for showing us that. authorities have home surveillance tape of three suspect who is gunned down a police officer. it is likely the wanted men are still in the area. meanwhile, a funeral will take

what happened today is an outrage. it is wrong. for the first time, we are seeing a christian woman thrown in jail for standing up to her faith. i tell you, i stand with kim davis. i stand with her and anyone else the government is trying to persecute for standing up for their faith. >> that was ted cruz weighing in on the arrest of the kentucky clerk who repeatedly refused to issue same-sex marriage license. they call her a martyr. critics wapt her to resign. the author of truth overruled, the future of marriage. thanks for being here on "new day." what's going to happen? how is this woman going to get out of jail when she says she cannot, because of her beliefs,
4:22 am
issue marriage licenses? >> well, hopefully she'll get out of jail because the state of kentucky will realize there are compromises that will protect the rights of gays and lesbians to get marriage licenses and for her not to have her name on it. >> you have a suggestion. what could have been the answer other than jailing her? >> sure. one of the answers would have been that the state of kentucky change their marriage license after the supreme court. it used to say bride and groom. they changed it to spouse one and spouse two. they could accommodate miss davis by removing her name. it's not clear why her name has to be on the license. sthak would have been acceptable to her, just to not have her name on the marriage license? would she have issued it to same-sex couples? >> as far as i understand, she said she would issue it if her name wasn't on it and allowed all the deputies to issue the
4:23 am
marriage license provided her name wasn't on it. i don't understand why we can't work together to find a compromise where it would be a win/win. >> that is a great suggestion. she can't just languish in a jail cell for what she says are her religious beliefs. the other alternative is she could have resigned. she took an oath to uphold the law of the land. the supreme court said this is the law of the land. so, she could have resigned her post. >> she could have but she shouldn't have to. we have a rich history in the united states of accommodating objectors. the state of kentucky accommodates for other types of licensing. north carolina has shown a way of how to do it for marriage in particular. we have done it with pacifists and a variety of people. the question here is, if we can accommodate someone, why shouldn't we? why should the burden be every aspect of the job or forced to
4:24 am
resign or go to jail? we haven't done it with other jobs or issues, why do it with this one. >> this county clerk has been married four times, divorced three times. do you understand why it is galling to same-sex couples that she would represent the sanctity of marriage? >> as she says it, all three previous marriages took place before her conversion to christianity. she doesn't deny she's lived a life she's not proud of. now that she's become a christian, lives life in accordance with beliefs. i don't think it's my place to judge her worthiness here. if we can accommodate the religious beliefs, we should try to. >> none of us are here to judge. it is her per ogtive to be married as many times as she wants as a heterosexual woman.
4:25 am
same-sex couples want the same. she has made a mistake a couple times and they feel she is judging them for wanting to live their fullest life. >> that's definitely true. she has a position on what marriage is, the union of a man and woman. all she's asking is to keep her job and not have her name on the licenses. county clerks do lots of things. she's been in this position for a while. if we can work together, we should. >> that sounds reasonable, ryan. is there any indication that kentucky will move towards that and allow her name to be taken off the marriage licenses? >> well, so far, the judge that heard the case can't allow that outcome to come forward. the governor says he refuses to call the legislature back to session to fix this legislatively. it looks like it might have to wait until january, when the
4:26 am
next sitting there. it could have been avoided had either the judge, governor or legislature willing to create a fix ahead of time. which is what north carolina did. >> yes, thank you for pointing that out, ryan anderson. nice to talk to you. thanks for pointing out all those compromises. what is your take on this? post your comment on facebook.com/newday. trump stumbles on foreign policy. will his supporters even care? john king breaks it down inside politics, coming up.

4:34 am
of iran. >> it's a fair question. you can give candidates a path if they don't know the names of the people. it is complex. at the same time, running for president has been an exercise in showing you are qualified to be president. people, typically, do not vote for someone and say we hope they learn on the job and figure it out. trump pushing back, though, shows he feels confident this is a different cycle that voters are not looking for that and see that changeover time. for now, he doesn't have to dive in. >> his relationship is, i am a ceo. i make decisions. i'm not afraid to make decisions. i'll be tough when confronted with the problem, i will deal with it. trust me. >> right. going up against hugh hewitt. he's saying i'm going to delegate it to people. don't worry.

i am going to find people who know it. at the end of the day, it's not enough. voters want someone that has a grasp at the issues. you have to know the players. when talking about the iran deal and criticizing it, you know what it involves. you should know some of the details. >> this is a preview of what we are going to see in the debate. candidates say mr. trump's positions aren't republican or he talks about building a wall, but foolish to think the mexicans are going to pay for it. i think we are going to see this play out. another issue, trump criticized jeb bush. bush speaks spanish at many rallies, his wife is from mexico. he is proud of that. respect spanish speaking americans in the country. he said bush should speak english. yesterday, at the news conference, after he signed the pledge, mr. trump said, i'm not backing down.
4:36 am
>> i think, when you get down to it, we are a nation that speaks english. i think, while we are in this nation, we should be speaking english. whether people like it or not, that's how we assimilate. that's how we will become accessible. it's more appropriate to be speaking english. >> another interesting debate about whether english should be the primary language. you have to have competence in english. but, the republican party got 27% of the latino vote in the last election and got its butt kicked again. is this a conversation that is helpful to whoever is the general election nominee? >> no. absolutely not. if you go back to the autopsy republicans did after romney lost in 2012, a lot of things they talked about when it came to hispanic voters wasn't just immigration but tone and how you talk. how you present yourself. you have to be welcoming two people who speak spanish.
4:37 am
by making the comments, trump isn't presenting that kind of front. >> he said on morning joe, he respect that is jeb bush speaks spanish. >> that's good. but, donald trump is not playing the game here. he is not looking -- he keeps saying he is going to win the primary nomination. but, you need to get to a general. you need hispanic voters, eventually. he's not doing a good job of courting them early on. >> we'll get to the reason, it should be obvious, but there's no question donald trump's daily or hourly attacks on jeb bush are having an impact. they have having an impact on the numbers and an impact on the candidate named bush. >> i'm going to push back when he says things that are ugly that i think will damage our brand, damage our ability to be successful. when he attacks me personally, you're damn right i'm going to fight back.
4:38 am
>> you are laughing. let's get to the reason in a second. let's put the new poll up. donald trump's numbers, 30% up from 26 last month. ben carson more than tripled at 18 up from five. bush is at eight, down from 12. there's a reason that bush better get damn mad. he's in trouble. >> he's in big trouble. i mean, he was supposed to be the joyful front-runner, have the money to scare off candidates. none of that is happening now. when you hear him say i'm going to pushback against donald trump, it doesn't feel natural. >> you look at it, it is -- donald trump is getting in his head. it's showing on the trail. >> one more footnote on the poll. 67% of republican voters want somebody outside of government. you have the senators, governors and mr. trump, dr. carson and
4:39 am
fiorina. that's why they are moving up in the polls. joe biden traveling this week. a lot of people are saying he's testing the waters, testing his own ability to run for president. his son died a short time ago. listen to him honestly saying i would love to run, but -- >> the most relevant factor in my decision is really my family and i have emotional energy to run. i have to be honest with you and everyone who's come to me, i can't look you straight in the eye and say i know i can do that. that's as honest as i can be. >> you listen to that, alisyn. we have a lot of fun with politics and horse races. the vice president, clearly very emotional, going through an honest and emotional process. we should respect that and see where we end up in the end.
4:40 am
it is interesting to see him in public dealing with this. >> absolutely. the will he, won't he? that gave us a window into his soul of what he's grappling with. it is important to see that. john, thank you so much. watch john king and his politics panel break down the best political news of the week sunday at 8:30 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. meanwhile, an eight foot long cobra, a king cobra on the loose in orlando this morning. how concerned should people be? that's next. diabetes, steady is exciting. only glucerna has carbsteady, clinically proven to help minimize blood sugar spikes. so you stay steady ahead.

4:45 am
venomous cobra, that sounds scary. >> yeah, it sounds terrifying. the truth is, even though this is the longest species of venomous snakes, this animal can grow up to 18 to 21 feet. this guy is junior compared to what they can be. they have an incredibly potent venom, they tend to stay away from people. they like their privacy. they live in southeast asia and tend not to like to tangle with people. >> so, what you are saying, if you are in orlando, hope the snake wants to go somewhere quiet and leave you alone? if he doesn't, that's when you are in trouble? >> here is the thing about cobras. they have remarkable behavior that tells and enemy or foe you are in danger.
4:46 am
when it opens up the ribs and misls in its head, that is a sign that says stay away, you are in trouble. >> good to know. when it opens its hood, i know to run away. that makes me feel better. >> bring out your flute and start playing, you should be okay. >> florida is a perfect place for this snake. there are plenty of places it can live comfortably for a very long time. >> yes, that is the big situation. that's the monkey wrench here, john. florida is a very warm place in the wintertime. this is a creature that lives in subtropical and tropical parts of the world, india, thailand. this animal is now escaped in florida, placed with famous mild winters. so, in theory, this creature, assuming it doesn't encounter significant frost or cold spells could survive for a long time.
4:47 am
there are parts of thailand where they live, in the mountains and places where they do experience colder weather. in theory, this animal could acclimate easily to an ecosystem that florida offers. >> they like to eat other snakes. any species that eats itself cannot be trusted. is there a way to trace this snake? now that it's gone, is there hope of catching it in. >> it is unlikely. they are territoryial. they stay in a home range and tend not to move. king cobras have very large home ranges. despite being large in size, it literally is trying to find a cobra in a hay stack. >> be careful out there. if it shows you the hood, run away. jeff corwin, appreciate you being with us.

5:00 am
chairman of the republican national committee going to trump's office in new york to get him on the team. it was just last month trump said he was not going to pledge allegiance to the eventual republican nominee. for now he says he's on board. the pledge is not legally enforceable, but at the very least it gives the republican establishment a little emotional insurance that he won't launch a third party run if he loses the nomination. >> i have signed the pledge. >> trump promising not to run as a third party candidate. and in the process gaining a political benefit for himself. >> i will be totally pledging my allegiance to the republican party. >> the move means trump will have the backing of all the gop candidates if he wins the republican nomination in 2016. >> this is not a guy who's a conservative. >> it could also combat one angle of attack by jeb bush about trump being a phony
5:01 am
conservative. this ad attacks hillary clinton and trump as being, quote, two sides of the same coin. >> the economy does better under democrats than the republicans. >> jeb coming out swinging in new hampshire on thursday. >> when he attacks me personally or disparages my family, damn right i'm going to fight back. . trump says could be exposed dur the next debate when asked about foreign policy as it was during this radio interview thursday. >> do you know the players without a score card yet, donald trump? >> you know, i tell you honestly by the time we get to office they'll all be changed and be all gone. >> trump slamming him for asking
5:02 am
questions. >> i will know more about it than you know and believe it it won't take me long. >> did you vote for trump? >> still trump continues to dominate the gop pack. in a head to head with other gop candidates second place retired neurosurgeon ben carson is -- he was seen as running against establishment politics. tea partiers who are supporting him, already expressing concern he has now given up important political leverage. let's turn now to sean spicer, the chief strategist for the republican national committee. good morning. >> good morning. >> that was a fun spectacle to
5:03 am
watch yesterday as the various candidates signed the rnc pledge. why was that necessary since it's utterly unenforceable? >> i think it's important because it allows the party to be unified going forward because all the top 17 candidates have committed that our number one goal is to support the eventual nominee and win back the white house in 2016. it allows us to focus on the prize. it was a great day for the party. in fact, it's been a great week by the party when you look at the efforts by cnn to amid their criteria and ensure a great debate on september 16th. >> so yesterday was also an interesting day. there was this 15-minute meeting between donald trump and reince priebus. what did they say to each other? >> the two sides talked about the importance of party unity. the importance of winning in november and the shared strategy that we have of being united as a party, getting behind the eventual nominee whether it's
5:04 am
mr. trump or another candidate and winning back the white house and setting an agenda that goes forward and put this is country back on track. >> listen. >> well, i'm not going to break it at all. i don't intend to break it. i won't break it. i speak with jean yesterday. we had a great talk. that road going independent is a very, very, long and tough road. i want to be the republican nominee and i want to go onto win and this is the best way to do that . >> first of all who recollects's ge -- who's genius? >> i think he means -- so in other words you trust donald trump? the tea party is upset, they think he's just closed an avenue. >> look there's two important things. number one, donald trump is a
5:05 am
successful businessman. he got that way by making sure that his word was his bond. the other 16 candidates are in the same boat. each one of them has put their name out there and said that they will pledge to support the eventual nominee. every single one of them has a strong word that we can take to the bank. i trust every single one of them that we can move forward and put this issue beside us. that's all enough this game. if you can't say you mean it, then it's worth nothing. the only way we win, the only way we stop hillary clinton or any other democrat is being unified as a party. because no third party, no independent is going win. and if someone does seek that avenue they undermine the republican party and basically under mine our ability to take on hillary clinton or whatever other democrat they put forward when she falters. >> i want to ask you about this
5:06 am
radio interview. he asked him a lot about various terror leaders names, foreign policy. do you think it's important for republican candidates at this point in the race to know the difference? >> i think there's a lot of things that every candidate has to know from foreign policy to the economy. i think a lot of these folk versus s have to get up to speed. sometimes there's a lot to digest whether it's knowing every one of the countries leaders or different sects within a particular country. there's no question. it's challenging to understand everything that's happening both domestically, economically. >> it's okay to not know it right now? >> no one knows everything. that's ridiculous. nobody, whether it's the current president or the united states or anybody who hopes to succeed him will know every single leader, will know every piece of
5:07 am
domestic policy. >> al baghdadi, that's almost a household name at this point in terms of isis and everything we've been reporting over the summer. so are you comfortable that donald trump or any of the republican candidates don't know that level of foreign policy at this point? >> i'm comfortable in saying anyone of the top 17 candidates that eventually seeks to be commander in chief will be well prepared to lead our country forward. >> let's look at this matchup between donald trump and ben carson. this is in the latest monmouth university poll. ben carson gets 55% against donald trump's 36%. this is after the summer spotlight has been almost solely on donald trump. and ben carson has not been the beneficiary of the media attention. how do you explain this? >> we're really early in a race. if you look at last cycle i think we had eight different candidates at one point or another led. we've got great candidates. when you look at the diversity
5:08 am
and the caliber of the top 17 candidates, our party has historical had the best crop of candidates of any party in history. and i'm very proud of it. i think you're going to see a lot of folks go up and down between now and next year. that's awesome. if you look at the record number of people that watched the two debates last month on fox, and i think we'll get great numbers on cnn coming up. that's phenomenal for our party. >> we are looking forward to september 16th. i though you aknow you are as w. ahead we will talk about all of this republican presidential candidate rick santorum. stick around for that. democrats two major story lines unfolding this morning. hillary clinton's team facing new questions over her private e-mail server. and vice president joe biden making his most candid comments
5:09 am
to date about a presidential run, saying a decision will depend on his family. jeff zeleny joins us live to explain. he is traveling with hillary clinton in puerto rico. >> hillary clinton is coming to puerto rico later today to campaign. she will not be leaving those controversies behind, particularly because one of her top advisers jake sullivan will be on capitol hill to testify. they're asking were the e-mails classified or not. this is all hanging over her campaign as the other democrat, potentially joe biden is decide w ing whether he's going to jump in. we heard a window into his thinking last night during a speech in atlanta. >> the factor is, can i do it? can my family undertake what is
5:10 am
an arduous commitment that we'd be proud to undertake under ordinary circumstances. but the honest to god answer is, i just don't know. >> reporter: so that sound like vice president biden might be leaning against a run. then a short time later he said, i can do it if i decide it's right for my family. it does not really advance the question of is he going to or not. we're still told he will make his decision by the end of september. hillary clinton has a big head start on him. one of the reasons she's here in puerto rico, vowing to work hard for every vote. the votes in puerto rico do not count in a general election. but in a primary election they do. that's why she's campaigning here. senator marco rubio is here today as well. >> thanks so much, jeff.
5:11 am
we have breaking news to tell you about. the clerk's office in rowan county kentucky has opened today. the county clerk is in jail this morning. kim davis argues that same-sex marriage violates her police chiefs. b.e. l. ie. f. s. . >> this clerk did everything in her power to stand in the way of issuing those licenses. that is why she is waking up in jail this morning. william smith and james yates are hopeful they are incredibly optimistic this is the day they will get that license. soon we ool see them come out of this court house and we'll know
5:12 am
whether the deputy clerks that told the judge they will issue licenses will in fact issue licenses. a lot of kim davis's supporters came out to the courthouse this morning. they are supporting her for deciding to hold out, deciding not to issue marriage licenses despite a court's order. she is now being held in contempt of court. you've also got marriage equality advocates outside of this county clerk's office, believing this is the day they've been waiting for. the judge asked five of her deputies to agree to issue the licenses. five of them did. the sixth deputy is kim davis's son. he is the loan holdout among the deputies. we should soon be seeing this couple emerging with their marriage license. i've just received word they were in fact given their license. they are from this county.
5:13 am
they wanted to obtain this marriage license document in their home county. it is their sixth try to obtain this. it is personal for them, deeply personal for them. we are being told they've been victorious in what should have been a simple task, given the supreme court's ruling earlier this summer allowing sm ining s marriage throughout the country. >> breaking news, the news that same-sex marriage licenses are being issued, are being handed out in the rowan county clerk's office right now. it will be interesting to see how that affects the case of kim davis, who is in jail right now for contempt of court. she of course said she would not approve of licenses being issued from that office at all. . meanwhile a major development this morning in the hunt for three suspected cop killers in illinois. authorities now have home surveillance video that may show the alleged murderers. rosa flores live in fox lake, illinois, with the very latest.
5:14 am
>> reporter: good morning, john. if this video delivers what investigators are hoping for, very soon we could see the faces of these suspected cop killers. here's what we know from authorities. this video was obtained from a homeowner. it's part of a home video surveillance camera system. here is the key. investigators saying that it is consistent with the fact that there are three suspects in this case. >> we don't believe in coincidences. however, we still don't know and can't verify exactly whether this video is relevant to the case. but at this point it's probably one of the most significant ones we've recovered. >> reporter: now, the other significant break in this case, the gun, the officer's weapon was recovers from the scene. investigators very tight-lipped about other details. but a cnn source tells us that
5:15 am
gun was actually fired. as for lieutenant gliniewicz we know that his funeral is monday. he's a father of four, a husband. and he dedicated more than 30 years of his life to the fox lake police department. >> let's hope police get a break in that case today. this morning, four u.s. troops injured in an explosion in the sinai peninsula. the soldiers are part of a peace keeping force supporting a treaty between egypt and israel. israel calling on egypt to get tougher with jihadi groups in the area. sacramento police searching for a beganmgunman who opened f sacramento city college. all three of them were students at the college. the gunman fled on foot. police belief tve the attack wan isolated incident.

5:21 am
trump the surging in the latest national poll. 30% of republican voters now back him. joining us now to weigh in on this race, presidential candidate rick santorum. thank you for joining us. senator, i know you care deeply about the iran nuclear deal and are opposed to it. looks like it will get through. it will be implemented. yesterday trump was asked about one element of this deal that bothers a lot of people, the iranian general. let's listen to this clip. >> are you familiar with the general? >> yes. go ahead. tell me. >> he runs the quds forces. >> i think they have been horribly mistreated by us. >> not the kurds. the quds.
5:22 am
>> i'm sorry. i thought you said kurds. >> senator, a lot of people said that donald trump sounded confused. he went onto admit he doesn't know the names of the various leaders of the terrorist groups in the middle east right now. >> one of the things i've talked about as an important part of my campaign is having someone with experience in this area. i authored the iran sanctions bill 12 years ago to put constraints on their nuclear program and have been fighting against the iranian death cult for the past dozen years plus. i think when you're looking at a dangerous world that the next president is going to be walking into, when you're looking at a presidential candidate, you want to look at someone when that person walks is into the oval office that the enemy know who is they are, just like ronald reagan did back in 1980 rand you
5:23 am
saw a whole change this atmosphere between the way they treated jimmy carter and ronald g reagan. experience does matter. i understand people's desire to have a new fresh face. but a combination of someone who's an outsider and someone who understands the real problems that confront this country and have experience in dealing with them is what i bring to the table. >> you say the enemies know who they are. and that candidate presumably has to know who the enemies are as well. is that disqualifying, in your mind? whanch >> what qualifies you to become the nominee is you get the most votes. you're seeing this summer that a lot of people with being looked at very seriously. and my job as a candidate is to go out there and articulate a vision and present the facts that we believe we're the best candidate to take on these challenges of a very, very dangerous world.
5:24 am
we've seen with barack obama. a lot of people like barack obama. but even though that do, i think are now looking at maybe having some experience in national security would have been helpful or having some idea of the nature of the threats that confront us would have been better for the united states than what we have with this president. >> there are those who say this iran nuclear deal empowers th e quds force. >> it does. they have been a thorn in our side for a long, long time. as you know, they were training and equipping the enemies of the united states and iraq and afghanistan. they're obviously very active in iraq right now, which i oppose. we have a president who's actually, you know, working with the quds force and encouraging them. called them a partner in peace. i think that's wrong.
5:25 am
we shouldn't be dealing with thugs. again, this is really important to differentiate between a vision of hillary clinton and calling iran a partner in peace while they're out there chanting death to america and celebrating they've taken on the united states and defeated it on the battlefield. they look at this agreement as they've actually defeated the united states. >> i want to shift to domestic news. we've just learned that rowan county kentucky has issued same-sex marriage licenses. your reaction? >> there's lots of issues behind this. the first one is why are we putting someone in jail. >> let's get to that in a second. do you think it's a good development that this county
5:26 am
clerk's office is issuing same-sex marriage licenses? >> i would say this, we have a situation where the united states supreme court in my opinion acted unconstitutionally. it's not just mine, it's also justice roberts' opinion. >> that was the minority opinion but the supreme court decided 5-4 is now law that same-sex marriage is now legal. so that is the law as it stands. >> what i would say is that the obligation i believe of a president of a congress when the court acts unconstitutionally and i believe they have is to use the power that is inherent in the contusistitution is call checks and balances. what happens if the supreme court acts unconstitutionally? what gets the opportunity to challenge them? >> do you think it's a county clerk in rowan county, kentucky? >> they believe kim davis did
5:27 am
was heroic and she suffered the consequences from it. putting her in jail was ridiculous. but that's sometimes what it takes for people who stand up and conduct civil disobedience because the law is unjust, to suffer the consequences for that. i commend her for standing up for her principles. it's incumbent on the congress and the legislature of kentucky to step up and check the court and the president to check the court when it goes beyond its legal authority. >> let me take a turn to the polls right now. you have been to 99 counties in iowa. for a second time. that is impressive in iowa. congratulations on that. you won iowa four years ago. the latest monmouth university poll shows your standing in iowa not nearly as high as it was the last time you ran for office. donald trump, ben carson.
5:28 am
rick santorum 2%. the last runner up in the election usually gets the nomination. why are you not benefitting from this tradition, senator? >> a couple things. the most recent poll right before that asked the question how many of you are decided on who you're going to select? and the answer was 12%. the second question that monmouth asked was who's on your list of potential candidates. and we were right at the top of being on more people's list than just about anybody else. we're not in a bad position right now. we're pretty much in the position we were four years ago, which is we're on everybody's list. people like they hear. and as you heard sean spicer say earlier there's a lot of good candidates that people are looking at. the longer they look, they'll come to the same conclusion they had four years ago, that the person who has the experience and vision to get this country

a possible break through this morning in the hunt for three suspected cop killers in illinois. home surveillance video may show the suspects. joining us to talk at it this morning morning is matthew horace. >> the video may have given us good images of the suspects, enough that we could use facial recognition to try to find out the identity of who these people
5:40 am
are. >> he says we've retrieved what we believe to be significant video that has been turned over to the department of homeland security for processing. any moment now we might know the results of this video. why is it turned over to the department of home security? >> they they have equipment to analyze the video very quickly. if they can give us quick turnaround that will be one more step in this case. they had better equipment or the resources to be able to turn around the analysis very quickly. >> you think the police have more physical evidence than we in the media know about. >> i know they have more physical evidence than they're reporting. they could have taken fingerprints off the firearm. they may have dna. in this case because the suspects have not been identified publicly, it's very important that they keep that information at a certain level
5:41 am
until they're ready to do it. >> lieutenant gliniewicz's gun was found at the scene. what does that tell them? >> obviously the gun is not in the hand of the suspects, but we can use that gun to determine if that was the gun that was used in the murder. if it was fired we could possibly get fingerprints or dna off of the casingcasings. >> you believe that lieutenant gliniewicz may have stumbled on something and that may have been what precipitated all of this. from your mind and your gut with years of experience, what do you think the scenario was? >> from my experience having been a patrol office you radio in that you have suspicious circumstances and it could have been one of any hundreds of scenarios. when he got out of that police cruiser and went up to approach
5:42 am
those suspects, something happened, a struggle ensued, he lost a gun or used a gun and that's where the situation derived out of. it could be anything. but i have to tell you, whatever the reason was he was stopping these people was dead on and spot on. and we know because these are dangerous dangerous suspects. >> three suspected cop killers are still on the run. explain the resources that come to bear with something like this. >> the federal, state and local governments come together and galvanize all their resources, that strategic leadership and tactical leadership. there's hundreds of people, boots on the ground to try to take out leads, send out leads and try to follow this to a successful conclusion. >> this is home video that we may have the results of any moment now. also this was a warehouse video. can't we assume there's other surveillance video out there?
5:43 am
>> we may be able to go back now and that i cake that video and the suspects were spotted before in other areas. it is well established that exercising is important for good health. but even if you exercise regularly, sitting like this for long periods of time can still shorten your life span. this week's cnn hero knows the importance of moving and he's taking a stand against sitting. >> i knew something had to change on my end to stay healthy. i go anywhere between nine to 12 hours all sitting at a desk. >> how far do you think you could walk before you had to stop? >> the number one thing i see my patients face as a cardiologist
5:44 am
is a sedentary lifestyle. so i said how about if my family goes to the park, would you be interested in joining us. so we'll see you tomorrow at the walk? >> yes. >> the response was phenomenal. there's no wait in the office. there's no fear of bad news. it's just the patient and the physician talking about whatever the patient wants to talk about. >> in the beginning i used to walk a mile or two. by the end of the year i've completed a full marathon. the doctor taught me we can achieve things that are really big. >> 80% of cardiac disease is preventible if we just go for a walk. if people just take that first step, they will never look back. >> you and i need to take that.

. a movie about a man trying to keep his family safe during an violent uprising. brosnan stars as a british citizen with little more than meets the eye. it's a delight to meet you. >> thank you so much. >> intense would be the word you'd use to describe this film. but at the core of it it's essentially a story about family. >> these young men who wrote, produced and directed this movie, i'd seen their other films and i really enjoyed them.
5:50 am
and this is a page-turner. that's always a good thing when you read a script. so there was that ingredient. it was thailand and owen wilson, whose work i really admire. and i had days off. >> days off in thailand not so bad. working with owen wilson, you enjoyed that? >> loved it. >> he's quite a character. >> he's so unique. it's the voice, the face and his timing is so good. and lake bell as well. and the children. for me it's beautiful. it's a win-win situation. it's a great film. it comes out, grabs you by the throat. >> doesn't let go for a while. >> doesn't let go. >> let's talk about your character. clearly this is a guy who has lost things in life. >> yeah.
5:51 am
he's a decembsolate, fractured fellow. he finds his humanity through meeting this family. they save him in some way. the family are definitely the hero. it's a tight film. it's an ensemble. this hammond weaves his way through the film. >> do you enjoy the fact that you get to play a character who is flawed, but you can see the humanity come to him oftentimes throughout the film. >> i think whatever you do you have to play with some heart, some soul, some kind of nod to audience as it were. because it's a film. >> it's a film. it's somewhat fantastical. again, this is a political uprising while a family is on vacation. it isn't beyond the realm of
5:52 am
possibility. almost torn from the headlines but not. >> while we were there in northern thailand, the unrest was going on down in bangkok. there was violence on the street every day. i was there with my family making the film. it had an intensity to our lives as film makers that just not too miles away was civil unrest in a country which is pretty volatile anyway at best of times. >> did you feel that tension or did it always feel somewhat removed from where you were? >> i think we feel the tension all the time now, sadly, in life. you know, it's just there. it's palpable. we have to be able to address that in some fashion with leaders, i think. yeah, it was palpable there when we were making the film. >> there's been reviews. i'm sure you've seen some of
5:53 am
them. some are a little critical of the film's handling of cultural context. some calling it racist. how do you react to that? >> i haven't read the reviews. i don't read them. >> do you generally stay away from them? >> i stay away from them. >> good for you. what do you say of that criticism, though? >> it's heavy-handed. this is a theatrical piece. get real. don't take yourself too seriously here. i don't think this is racist at all. it's a family film. i think the brothers have acq t acquitted themselves grandly as film makers and writers. i don't think that's necessary. >> i think this is going to be a great romp as you said. the idea that it holds by the throat and doesn't let go.
